Clutch life

Hey guys. Just had a random question. Was just wondering what kind of mileage you are all getting out of your clutch plates. Mine is not slipping or anything like that. My bike is used for daily commute to work mostly. As well as probably one day a month doing some off road. I'm coming up on 40,000 miles so I'm just wondering if I should have some plates on had or maybe just swap em out if I'm not far away. Kinda planning ahead ya know.

My assessment; FEAR NOT!

The KLR650 clutch remains most robust; probably last beyond engine rebuild time.

Provided the clutch is not abused.
